Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley have been attacked by a number of Trump loyalists for failing to comment on rumors the former president will be arrested on Tuesday.

MAGA Republicans have criticized DeSantis and Haley for not speaking out against the Manhattan DA’s office for what they claim is a weaponization of the justice system.

DeSantis is widely rumored to be preparing to run against Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. Haley was the first to enter the race after Trump.

Jason Miller, a Trump adviser and the former CEO of right-wing free speech app Gettr noted a ‘radio silence’ from the two since the rumors gained momentum early on Saturday.

He simultaneously shared comments from Mike Pence, who on Saturday accused the Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg of a ‘political prosecution’ after the rumors spread that his office would be indicting Trump over Stormy Daniels hush money payments.

Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, now one of the most powerful Republicans in Congress and once a dependable ally to Trump, also spoke in his defense on Saturday morning.

He wrote: ‘Here we go again – an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump.

‘I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.’

He tweeted again on Sunday: ‘Alvin Bragg is abusing his office to target President Trump.’ 

Heightening pressure on DeSantis was that he is the governor of Florida, the state Trump has made his home since leaving office.

Far-right social media personality Mike Cernovich suggested the governor should make it clear he would not extradite Trump from Florida without a ‘proper legal review’.

‘DeSantis is making his first unforced error by not denouncing this lawless act,’ he said. One Twitter user pointed out that Trump had suggested that in his original Truth Social that he would be turning himself in, and that it was not an extradition case.

Ben Kew, editor-at-large of conservative news site Red State, wrote in response: ‘I say this as his most fervent supporter, but Ron DeSantis is making a massive mistake by not speaking up on the Trump prosecution issue.’

The pressure that DeSantis is now coming under to comment on Trump’s rumored indictment was especially evident in replies to the governor’s most recent tweet, put out on Saturday afternoon, which was related to Hurricane Ian.

‘The world is watching your every move Ron,’ read one of the top replies.

‘You are making a grave decision by not addressing the current corruption. By staying silent, we know you are bought and paid for, which is horrifying for the future of this country,’ read another. 

‘My goodness I never thought I would see Ron’s comments look like this…’ tweeted one person.

While DeSantis was quick to be accused of cynical political strategizing. Longshot presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy sought to use the situation to his advantage.

He had stern words on Saturday for the field of Republicans, claiming their silence could be ‘the beginning of the end’.

If an indictment is levied in the case involving Trump’s hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, it would be the first against the former president – and could open a floodgate for other cases against him.

‘Today was an important day in the country,’ Ramaswamy said during a brief press conference following his own remarks at the forum.

‘The reason I’m doing this is because the rest of the Republican field, I think, has been deafeningly silent about an important issue in the country today,’ he added of the news that an indictment could be looming.

‘What I’m about to say has nothing to do with Donald Trump and everything to do with the integrity of an election and the integrity of a self-governing democracy,’ the biotech multimillionaire added.

‘So I don’t care whether you root for Trump or whether you don’t, if you root for the integrity of our constitutional republic then you need to be on the side of being really clear.’

Ramaswamy has been extremely vocal in denouncing the prospect of an indictment against Trump, claiming that there would be no case if it weren’t for the face that the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is severely anti-Trump.

He claimed during his press conference in Charleston on Saturday that Bragg is a ‘politically empowered prosecutor’ looking to ‘eliminate the opposition of a ruling party using arrest power.’
